About sacred writings
Stained glass window inside the former Methodist Church in Cressona, the new home of the Unitarian Universalist Church.
Unitarian Universalists keep an open mind regarding all of the the world's religious writings, and have great respect for all. According to a UU statement of principles:
"We do not, however, hold the Bible or any other account of human experience to be either an infallible guide or the exclusive source of truth. Much biblical material is mythical or legendary. Not that it should be discarded for that reason! Rather, it should be treasured for what it is. We believe that we should read the Bible as we read other books with imagination and a critical eye. We also respect the sacred literature of other religions. Contemporary works of science, art, and social commentary are valued as well. We hold, in the words of an old liberal formulation, that 'revelation is not sealed.' Unitarian Universalists aspire to truth as wide as the world we look to find truth anywhere, universally."
